Here are the reasons:
coming off HRT so I have lots of night sweats and insommia
I sit in bed drinking a cup of tea reading in the morning ( telling myself I really ought to blog but.......)
Marmite is not what you think , a famous black yeast spread to put on your toast , but in fact a black and white sprocker ( cross beteen a springer and a cocker) now a mischievous and energetic 5 month old. ( yes we thought we were mad too!)
Yesterday we were out for the day having a walk together and doing our best to tire out the said Marmite (as we call his name we hear a chorus from other dog walkers every where we go of "love him or hate him "-a reference to the famous advertising campaign for Marmite with a tag line of "love it or hate it") .
It was our wedding anniversary and we were going out of a meal in the evening so dog had to be well and truly tired out so he would sleep rather than chewing up shoes or slippers or some such while we are out-he always find s something . ) So we were walking along the Conwy estuary loking across the river to the famous Conwy castle built by Edward 1st to keep the Welsh down and trying to persuade Walnut our springer spaniel and Marmite that a dip in the fast flowing river was not perhaps the best of ideas when to my astonishment I saw huge stands of Weld. Of course I did not have my camera! (sigh ) but take my word for it there was masses of it behind fences.
I picked a bit of the seed heads where most of the dye is and tomorrow I shall dye with it. ( Not before sprinkling it the seeds around some newly dug earth where weld likes to grow.
ps Marmite has kept me company while I was writing this and enjoyed himself ripping up an old catalogue and then enterprisingly he went down stairs, brought up the dustpan and is chewing that.
